Hand Washing Assembly

A few nursing students from TX A&M Commerce came to CES today to discuss the benefits of good hand washing. They let us practice how to wash our hands properly. We even watched a great video and received certificates for being super "germ busters"! 

Countdown Day 27

We got to go on a scavenger hunt today!! We looked for one of each of the following items: flower, grass, wood chip, stick, leaf, and rock. The students traveled outside with their table groups to find the objects. They had so much fun!! 

May 2014 Snack Calendar

Here is our snack calendar for May! I plan on using the extra snacks that we have left over from May for the last week of school in June. If we start running low I will let you know. Please make sure to send enough snack for 19 students on your child's designated day.

Thank you to everyone that sent snack during the month of April!

Countdown Day 29 & 28

Since I was gone on Friday we caught up on our countdown today by popping two balloons!! Our 29th balloon was to write thank you notes to anybody in our school and our 28th balloon was to sit on any color spot!! The students enjoyed getting to sit by someone new and they loved writing letters today!! Can't wait to find out what tomorrow's balloon will bring!!

Lizzie Sider Presentation

Lizzie Sider visited CES today to talk about bullying. It was a very moving and powerful message! The children enjoyed listening to her discuss bullying and how to prevent it. I think the part they liked the best were the songs! Thanks Lizzie for coming to our school!


April 25, 2014 News

Here is the newsletter for the week. Remember, tomorrow is Kindergarten Cap and Gown Pictures. I will be out tomorrow so please remember if you send a picture order form to school to place it in your child's folder. The substitute will not have time to check all the backpacks. You can also remind your child to hand it directly to the substitute. I reminded all of the students and made a note for my substitute to read. I just want to make sure that all money/order forms get turned in and that the picture taking process goes as smooth as possible.

Check out the dates to remember! We have so many fun activities coming up!

Also, we start our end of the year countdown on Monday with Day 29! I'll be sure to post pictures of what fun activity we get to do each day! The children are so excited!!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

April 18, 2014 News

Here is our newsletter for the week! Remember that April 25th is Kindergarten cap and gown pictures. They will wear the gown over their clothes. Please turn in your order forms by the 25th. Make sure the order form is in your child's folder and not just placed loosely in their backpack. It is easier and more time effective for me to check their folders in the morning and get everything that I need out of them instead of looking through 19 individual backpacks. :) I want to make sure that Lifetouch leaves with all of the picture order forms. Thank you for your cooperation!

I can't wait to see how they all look in their cap and gown! Crazy to think we only have 1 more six weeks left of school! It goes by too fast!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Trip to the Children's Museum

We had so much fun at the children's museum today. We got to see a science experiment, learned about oxygen, carbon dioxide, and helium, and learned about our heart and lungs and how to stay healthy!
